When traveling with your pet internationally, there are health requirements specific to each country. Regulations can cause confusion and ultimately delay your pets transportation when they do not meet the country’s specifications. Almost every country has different laws for entering with pets whether by ground or air.
It is important to follow all requirements that are in place by the country that you intend to have your pet travel to. Thailand has specific regulations that should be followed to allow for your pets transportation to run smoothly. Whether your pet is traveling with you, or alone, it is important that you carefully follow all of the guidelines!
- Up to date Rabies Vaccination
- Iso-compliant Microchip
- Health Certificate, signed by a USDA licensed veterinarian and endorsed by the USDA-APHIS office.
Pets Younger than 90 Days
BoIf your dog or cat is younger than 90 days or originating from a rabies-free country, they are not required to have prior rabies vaccination. However, they must have a microchip implanted. These specific documents must be submitted to the animal quarantine officer during entry into Korea. The microchip number can be written on the pets USDA health certificate.
Pets Older than 90 Days
Pets whom are older than 90 days must have a rabies-neutralizing antibody 24 months prior to import into the country. This test must be administered by an internationally approved laboratory. This is an important step as to making sure your pet has a microchip and also their up to date rabies vaccination for pet transport.
Air Transport to Korea
Airlines have their own specifications for pet transport. An health certificate may be required for transport even though it is not a regulation that Iraq has for import. The airline regulations may also may be different depending on which airline you choose.
